SHRIEN Dewani is expected to be publicly questioned for the first time when inquest into the death of his wife Anni resumes next week.
Dewani, 35, was cleared of Anni’s murder in South Africa last year but did not have to testify in court.
He could be questioned under oath by the coroner and by the lawyer representing Anni’s family.
Her father Vinod Hindocha is hoping coroner Andrew Walker will call the Bristol-based businessman as a witness.
Hindocha said: “There are so many unanswered questions that need to be put to [Dewani].
“This will be our last chance to find out what really happened. It’s our last shot at justice.”
Walker is set to decide on the details of the inquest at a hearing on Wednesday (9).
Anni, 28, was shot dead in November 2010 in South Africa during their honeymoon after a carjacking.
In December, a judge in Cape Town called a halt to the trial after an application Shrien’s counsel that the prosecution case was flawed.
The judge said the evidence against the care home boss was “riddled with contradictions”.
But she added it was “regrettable” that a lot of issues remained unclear surrounding the murder of Anni.
Last month Dewani was spotted by a member of Anni’s family while on holiday in Kenya.
Hindocha said he was planning a private prosecution against Dewani but changed his mind because his family felt it would “re-open too many wounds”.
He added: “I want to hear from his lips why they went to the township – and why he left her. We have never been given the full story.”
